In this one-semester 9th grade course, students use journals, discussions, at-home and online labs, and structured web quests to explore introductory physical science concepts which will prepare them for high school chemistry and/or physics.

Course materials: We will use many research articles and Internet sites; links and attachments will be provided in class. Students are asked to purchase an inexpensive set of science equipment and common household materials—the list will be available on the MNOHS web site one week before the start of each semester. Before a student can enroll in a MNOHS science course, MNOHS must receive a permission form signed by a parent or guardian (if the student is under 18).

Standards met: This course meets all standards and benchmarks in the following strands of the 2009 Minnesota Science Standards for Grades 9-12: The Nature of Science and Engineering; Physical Science.
